If your looking to purchase a VW golf gate go for it you will not be disappointed.

I love the car. The turbo makes driving everyday fun. The heated seats are awesome in the winter and I prefer the Clark plaid over the leather. The google car play is a great feature also. Being able to get navigation from your phone displayed on the car screen is a huge plus. I have had the car a little over 6 months and haven't had any issues and I also have a little over 14000 miles. The car is comfortable in traffic and on long trips. I would prefer it had a sunroof and I've seen cars with nicer wheels. But there really isn't much about the car I would say I would change. Stock from the factory it has all the comfort you need touch screen radio with satellite. And steering wheel controls are a huge plus it has volume control and ability to answer phone calls via Bluetooth. You can also scroll through the radio stations on the steering wheel. The car also has the ability to give you tips to save fuel economy through a blue menu. It will tell you when you are doing things that are wasting fuel like having your windows open or your car running stationary. All in all I would recommend the golf gate to anyone interested it has enough space to have 4 adults comfortably in it and the hatch back gives you the ability to fit a bike in the back with the seats down.

The perfect car for those who care about driving.

Outside of a set of tires, I haven't had any extra maintenance costs other than oil changes. The vehicle is equally comfortable on long road trips or short hops around town. Due to its diminutive size, it is easy to maneuver in tight quarters, yet it has a decent amount of cargo space. As to features, the car is not laden with tech, but has all the necessary accoutrements of a modern car, things like android and iPhone connectivity, heated seats, rearview camera, and a lot of nooks and crannies for life's daily detritus. Details and performance are what set this car apart. For example, the door pockets are lined with a felt material; something not highly noticeable, but a clever touch to quell rattles. All the switchgear feel solid, the doors shut with a reassuring thunk, and the hatch opens and closes needing only a firm tug on the handle. Topping all these positives, however, is the car's engine and suspension. The turbo is perfect for that mad rush into interstate traffic or for that playful romp through a set of s-shaped corners. The suspension handles these outbursts with equal part dignity and verve. One's courage is reached before the car's limits are. Overall a superb vehicle and highly recommended.

Classy, quick, and comfortable!

The Volkswagen GTI is an amazing and robust vehicle. It is a quick vehicle which gives me peace of mind on the highway because it opens up the possibility of getting ahead rather than worrying about having to slow down behind everyone. It is a perfect car for mountain driving and takes the sharp turns easily without making it feel like it's going to tip over. The bucket seats allow for a comfortable ride for an extended period of time and the design of the seats is charming. It easily fits my large stroller and car seat comfortably as well as groceries! The backup camera is wonderful and convenient, the compact size allows for easy parking, and the car syncs seamlessly with my phone for calling and navigating.
